“The classes were exceptional… if anyone is concerned because this is an online class and that there will not be any interaction they will be very surprised. The instructors were very knowledgeable and not only taught what was in the book but also added relevant knowledge that helped in understanding the material."
“I was ready to take my project management skills to the next level. IIL's Advanced Project Management Certification was just what I was looking for. Dr. Kerzner's Best Practices in Project Management class was a treasure trove of “Solutions” to problems we've all encountered. I look forward to testing some of these solutions on my next project."

“I would like to recommend the APMC certification to all PMPs. As a PMP, I wanted a training program and a certification that would build on PMP and go beyond. The APMC not only covers Project Management but it also teaches Program Management and Portfolio Management. The program is very well designed, includes amazing content and allows self paced training which allowed me to become the first APMC outside of the US. IIL and Dr. Kerzner have outdone themselves with the APMC.” Olivier Perron, PMP, APMC, MS Project Blue Belt
